This is one of the most important safety courses for professional seafarers. Bluewater is 1 of only 2 schools approved to run it outside the UK and the only one in continental Europe. This course covers the syllabus required by the STCW95 Code Table AVI/3. It is a management level course aimed at those holding or aspiring to MCA Certificates of Competency in both deck and engineering specialisations, and also for those aiming to be awarded the new PYA interior head of department certificate.
The course contains much practical fire fighting using different types of extinguishers, hoses and breathing apparatus. Students gain experience in fighting fires in an enclosed space with heat and smoke and of casualty evacuation in a series of escalating exercises designed to build confidence and teamwork. They will also acquire an appreciation of command and control problems. The practical drill can be physically demanding and students should be reasonably fit.
